Thank you for helping Mansfield’s ninth Habitat for Humanity house

A big thank you to all those involved in our recent Habitat for Humanity construction project. There are at least two groups of people to thank: those who donated money and materials and those who gave of their time and labor to actually build the house. This was house No. 9 for our community-wide effort. I learned a few years ago from a mentor that if one tries to name everyone that was involved in a project someone is always missed so I will not go down that path. But, as usual, there were at least eight churches, six civic groups, 14 local businesses and 15 individuals who donated financially to the project. The actual construction project included 356 volunteers working four or more hours on the house.
